Africa Latress Rainey, MA, LCPC, EdD, Counselor in Arlington Heights
I believe the key to healing lies within each of us. My passion is in helping others locate that key and unlock the fear, pain, and feeling of not being good enough and open the door to being the Authentic person you desire. I believe our emotions, aren't the enemy but guides toward helping us realize what we do and do not want for ourselves. Once we learn to be more aware of what we are doing that perpetuates our unhappiness, then we can make different choices, ones that bring us a greater understanding of ourselves and our relationships.
I specialize working with individuals who often feel our culture as a whole does not accept them for who they are, whether it is sexual, gender, racial minorities, disabilities or size, it's important to understand there is NOTHING wrong with you!
My goal is to enrich lives and provide a safe atmosphere to allow clients to truly go within and heal.
